Meridian Systems, the Plan-Build-Operate technology solutions leader for
project-based organizations, announced today the release of Prolog®
Version 9 software, a new release featuring several product enhancements
and performance improvements for the Prolog construction project
management application suite.

Designed specifically for Architecture, Engineering and Construction
(AEC) organizations, the Prolog software solution offers the most
complete project management system available today—from the field to
back office. The software is ideal for project managers who are
accountable for cost, scope and schedule, and project teams contributing
to the successful delivery of projects. The Prolog suite of applications
includes Prolog Manager, a Windows-based desktop client and Prolog
Converge, a Web-based application built on Web services.

“Prolog 9 provides more access to critical construction cost data needed
to deliver projects successfully,” said Jon Fingland, head of AEC
Service Provider Business Unit at Meridian Systems. “Prolog 9.0
continues to offer deep project controls functionality required by
project managers, while also allowing the broader project team to share
more cost details utilizing our Web services platform. This new release
makes it is easier than ever for AEC firms to deliver projects on

The Prolog 9.0 release includes important updates to the Prolog Manager
and Prolog Converge applications, which are both accessible on Prolog
Sky, Meridian’s new cloud service that allows organizations to access
Prolog’s robust construction project management functionality over the

The Prolog Converge application has been enhanced with improved cost
control functionality that provides project stakeholders with more
visibility and easier ways to collaborate on the financial aspects of a
construction project. Prolog customers will benefit from the addition of
17 new cost forms, such as contract invoices, purchase change orders
(PCOs), change order requests and more.

The Prolog Manager technology update provides support for the latest
version of Microsoft Office 2010 bringing current Word processing
functionality and compatibility to the more than 6,000 organizations who
use the Prolog Manager application today.

Prolog 9 is available starting September 30, and will be available as a
self-hosted deployment and on the new Sky service, announced by Meridian
on August 25, 2011. The Sky service is a new cloud-based deployment
offering allowing access to Prolog software in a hosted environment. The
Sky service allows customers to quickly and easily deploy Prolog in a
proven software hosting environment, enabling organizations to start
realizing construction project management software benefits within a
tight time schedule. The Sky service also provide customers with the
flexibility to manage their software investment by providing the ability
to easily scale the number of users up or down as their business grows
or as the user base changes.

In-depth information and demonstrations of the Prolog 9 release and the
Sky service will be featured at the 2011 Meridian Systems User
